The all new Wolfpack Webinars are intended to connect our community virtually until we can be together again. Each webinar will be 1 hour and have a format similar to the Veterinary Medical Forum Series. A Q&A session will be available at the end of each webinar.
The webinars will be free to those that view them live and $10 for on-demand viewing using Moodle.
Topic: How to Get the Most Out of your Pathology Samples-Helpful Tips and Tricks
Gregory Krane– Graduate Research Assistant
Sarah Beatty– Clinical Pathologist
Pathology samples such as CBC, chemistry, urinalysis, cytology, and biopsy are an important part of daily practice to aid in diagnosis and treatment of disease in veterinary patients. Starting with a high quality sample by minimizing preanalytic factors can increase clinical confidence and improve the final results obtained. Sample preparation and handling can affect samples processed in-house or those sent to a diagnostic laboratory, and appropriate processing is crucial to result in accurate data and meaningful pathology reports. In clinical practice, veterinarians can find themselves needing to submit complicated samples for pathology. Specimens such as eyes, limbs, and large cutaneous or visceral masses create challenges that must be overcome. At the conclusion of this seminar, clinicians should feel comfortable collecting and submitting such samples to a pathology service and understand what questions to ask a pathologist when complications arise.
This seminar will offer one (1) hour of NCVMB approved CVME for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
